Ghyll Head has been delivering high quality outdoor education since 1967. Based in the Lake District National Park on the shores of Lake Windermere, the Centre consists of two residential facilities situated in 17 acres of mixed woodland and has lake shore access with our own private boathouse.

We offer activities for school and youth groups as well as private individuals and
corporate organisations.

Courses are tailor made to suit the needs of our clients and can be residential or non residential. Offsite activities use the mountains, lakes and rivers of the National Park and the caves of the Yorkshire Dales. Onsite activities include: high ropes elements, problem solving and a range of exciting lake based activities.

Our instructors are well qualified in all of the activities we offer enabling them to stay with their group for the duration of the course, delivering a much more personal experience for participants.

At Ghyll Head we feel there should be no barriers to adventure, we have superb accessible facilities including wheelchair abseils, zip wire, off road and electric wheelchairs as well as a purpose built accessible boathouse, with lift and hoists allowing access to canoeing and sailing.

Accommodation includes a modernised Victorian house sleeping 46, and a modern accessible Bungalow that sleeps 15. Both buildings have their own dining facilities, games room, drying area as well as communal space and ICT suites. Groups have sole occupancy of their accommodation.
